What Is G3?

G3 groups are small groups focused on a specific topic or struggle. The groups are short-term and provide a safe environment where members learn insights and skills that will allow them to more fully engage in biblical community. Just as all members should be involved in a Bible study, we believe that there are opportunities for all members to be involved in a G3 group.

“G” is for gospel-centered groups. Rather than making an issue, struggle, or sin the centerpiece of our groups, we strive to make the gospel of Christ the core of all of our groups. Our identity is not found in an issue, but in an individual — the person of Christ.

The “3” designates the three types of groups that are offered within this ministry: process, recovery, and support.

Types of G3 Groups


Process groups focus on Christian living and provide a biblical perspective to address specific areas of life.  Examples of Process groups include:
